With the encouragement of Jacob Sokol, I have created my own version of the "When Life Works List." And it's a fact that my life works better when I bead something every day. Whether I'm teaching children, preparing for a piano recital that's months away, or writing a novel that may or may not ever be published, the gratification for my effort lies weeks, months, even years ahead. But at the end of a beading session, I have something tangible for to show for my time. That's really helpful on a day when I feel like I'm getting nowhere fast.
Anyway, I thought you might enjoy seeing what I have made over the past week or so.
